Summertime Swing Roundup! 

We have finally finished counting everything up and all in all, it was the biggest and best Summertime Swing in the 13 years we have been putting it on! Roughly 1,600 people were in attendance which is 400 more than last year! We raised a whopping £20,000 for charity which will be going to the Not Forgotten Association and other local charities to be presented in October so thank you to everyone that came, helped and supported the event in any way at all!

Thanks to our artists; Mike Sanchez, Peter Donegan, Cassidy CJ Janson, Rebel Dean and Miss Amy Baker plus DJs Eight-Beat Mac & Swing Out Si and also Viv The Spiv for MCing! PA from Novum Audio Visual Limited stage from Event Hire Professionals Ltd, live recording from Offslip - Live Band Recordings, video from SlingShot Productions and dance floor from Dance Floor Hire Direct.

Volunteers Graham, Lauren, Richard, Val, Emilio, Gill, Roger, Andy, Hannah, and anyone else we have forgotten. Anyone that put out flyers or have the event a plug, especially Peter who sold a bunch of tickets! A HUGE thank you to the staff at Saint Hill Manor for sponsoring and co-hosting the event with us!

Tea at the Palace! 

Yesterday we were honoured to be invited to a tea party at Buckingham Palace due to our fundraising efforts throughout the year for the Not Forgotten Association, mainly from Summertime Swing.

We were even listed in the top fundraisers in the brochure!

HRH Prince Harry was on hand to meet and greet the veterans and we met a whole host of people including Tony Blackburn, Fatima Whitbread, Aled Jones and more!

It was an amazing event with over 2000 people, veterans, contributors and supporters of the charity and celebrities.
